About

Tony Award(r) winner Brian Stokes Mitchell has been praised as "the last leading man" by the New York Times. From portraying Coalhouse Walker Jr. in Ragtime, to Petruchio in Kiss Me, Kate, to the Demon Barber of Fleet Street in Sweeney Todd as part of the Kennedy Center's Sondheim Celebration in 2002, he is a stage talent unlike any other. With Marvin Hamlisch and the NSO Pops, he perform a program of Broadway favorites, including songs from Porgy and Bess, Carousel, and South Pacific, as well as his acclaimed rendition of "The Impossible Dream" from the recent hit Broadway revival of Man of La Mancha.
